                  Amazing place, clean and perfect in location :) also fantastic recommendations by Wade”

                  The facilities are amazing. The rooms were full and we were lucky enough to be staying with good manners. The semi private rooms are fantastic, comfortable and great value, the showers and toilet facilities are clean. There was free jam and toast, as well as coffee in the morning (all self service). The recommendations are great and to top it off the holding of luggage so we could explore the area the next day was an added bonus. Great hostel, would recommend to anyone and would definitely stay again if I visited Hiroshima :) A++

                  It was very nice! Resources like three cooking burners, an iron to borrow, and towels. The sleeping arrangements were more like a capsule hotel than a hostel. I was weirded out by all the security cameras everywhere, though, even inside the women’s dorm.

Beautiful place and 100% clean. You even get a restaurant 1F and some others on the street. Convenient store in front of the building. You can go to peace park and museum by walking, easily. Everything is perfect. Loved this place, extended my stay!

                  Lovely new hostel”

                  The hostel is clean, brand new, the facilities provided are great. I love the communal space, it was very inviting. The hangers outside the rooms are very useful. And the sinks in the bathroom are really cool! With the exception that the lift gets congested as everything is split on different floors so it’s constantly in use. Showers on one floor, kitchen/communal space on another, rooms on another. Plus there are no toilets on the shower floor so you have to go in between. And the semi private rooms are a little noisy.

                  I think because of COVID, the staff was lacking, hence the lower rating. But overall, it’s your standard hostel. Communal shower floor, lounge floor with all your kitchen needs. Coin laundry and dryer. Toast as breakfast. Very clean though 👌🏼👌🏼

                  + buses and trams at the doorstep. close to konbini and can*do for food and emergency purchases. a bit outside the city but it was a lovely walk to the city center. free towel rental and toiletries. - i thought i booked a pod (lower bunk) at a 12-bed room but apparently it was 12 lower+12 upper bunks = 24 guests in a room so it could be rather noisy at night and morning. there is only one elevator and no stairs. showers and sinks are only at 3F. pods are a bit low and tatami-based so lower bunk is at floor level (some might not like it). staff speak a really basic-to-zero english despite the numerous tourists and english signs at hiroshima itself so it may be an inconvenience if you don't speak any japanese at all.

But floor is always wet so no enough space to keep our pjs or something. ・friendly and warm stuff.

                  The overall ambiance is really nice and the staff are friendly. Location is also short walks to popular Hiroshima sightseeing spots. Feels new and really clean. We stayed in their semi-private room, which is just like 4-5 rooms per floor. It has tatami mats and futons that are easy to assemble, and that's everything in the room already. The walls are private but not fully enclosed, you can hear people from the nearby rooms. There are free and paid coffee in their common lounge room with lots of other activities. The first floor of the hotel is a small restaurant. Their bathroom has paid hot water, and a claw machine. I think all lights in this hotel are motion sensor.

                  Nice, new facilities but upstairs bunks are super hard to get to - the ladders are not well constructed and it was a pain to go up and down to my bed. Hot water for showers cost 100yen - that was really disappointing. I haven't stayed in any other hostel in Japan that charged money for shower water.

                  アゴダで紹介していただくホテルは良質なホテルが多く、今まで楽しい旅を続けてこれましたが、今回の川手屋は、最低最悪のヒドいホテルでした。 アゴダで予約を済ませてホテルに着いたら、入口がロックされていて、入ることすら出来ませんでした。 そこに貼り紙がしてあって、泊まる者は別な場所でチェックイン手続きを済ませろと書いてあるのですが、その場所まで歩いて30分もかかりそうなのです。 旅行で疲れて早く眠りたいのに、それから往復1時間も歩いてチェックイン手続きをしなければ泊まれないホテルということに本当に驚きました。 こんな極めて特殊なチェックイン方式であることは、予約時にはまったく知らされておりませんでした。 電話番号が書いてあったので苦情を申し立てると「これがウチのやり方だから、文句があるなら泊まるな!」とスゴむので話になりません。 あきらめて他のホテルに泊まりましたが、川手屋にお支払した宿泊料は1円も戻って来ません。

                  広島駅から少し離れているのですが交通の便はそこそこ良いので、 それほど問題ないと思います。比較的近くにコンビニもあり便利です。 まだ新しいところなので設備もきれいで、清潔感があります。 チェックインが少し遅くなったのですが、事前に連絡しておいたら わかりやすいように対応していただけました。 ホステルの利用は初めてでしたがカプセルホテルの様な作りになっていて 落ち着けます。 不満な点は少し冷房が効きすぎてたくらいでしょうか。 機会があればまた利用しても良いと思いました。
